I'm really impressed with the N85, which I've had for about a week now.
One of the features I love is the FM transmitter, which was one of the key selling points. I'm able to play all the MP3's from my phone on my car stereo, and although not completely flawless is pretty good.
Also, one thing I discovered the other day is the ability to pick up Internet Radio. The nice thing about this is you can then transmit this via the FM transmitter to your normal radio. Of course though you need a decent Internet connection, but in the house this is fine.
One slight negative is the gaming. The Keys aren't that great for gaming purposes, even though it's one of the key selling points of this phone.
Also the auto-rotate is a bit annoying.
All the same though, it's a great phone, and I would highly recommend it. I keep finding new things it can do!
Hello Every one....How to activate the touch sensitive Navi wheel ???? please help
the n85 is excellent in every aspect I can think of for the 2 months I've had it. I really admire the screen, its colours are a lot "warmer" than your average TFT screen and more natural (due to OLED). As for the early complains on rebooting when recharging, that has never happened to my unit. earpiece is fine, everything works great. My imei unit has the 7th & 8th number 02, even so it has never failed me once.

There seems to be a lot of people comparing phones over and over again. Okay, here it goes:
In comparison to N85,N95 8GB has better camera, both image and video quality, larger but inferior screen, much much much better build quality, much louder speakers, 3D graphics accelerator, and is more expensive. In turn, in comparison to N95 8GB, N85 has better screen, better sound quality through the headphones, more compact but poorer build quality, longer battery life, more 3G bands, naviwheel, fm transmitter, fp2 and is cheaper.
N85 and N79 have basically the same feature sets except for the screen and form factor. N85 is better overall. But N79 is more durable and cheaper.

But if you can afford to add a few bucks more, get N85. N85 and N79 basically have the same feature sets. The only difference lies on the screen and form factor. And also, the build quality. N79 is more durable while N85 has a lot of build issues.
